No, no more warranty. :)
But good point as it behaves as if the system powers down and within a 
second powers up again.
But in Bios there is only a "Auto Power On" where you can set a time on 
weekdays/everydays when itself powers up. This is set to disabled.
There is no "previous state".
I willl open it up and look after the capacitors.
